Oxford Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective way to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of treatment centers on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as enhancing range of motion and reducing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Oxford thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Satterwhite Chiropractic.


Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that affects the mid part of your spine, called the thoracic spine region. This area includes your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain involve sprain or strain of muscle, injury to a disc, spinal stenosis, compressed spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other causes may include bad posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that puts pressure on the nerves in this area. Satterwhite Chiropractic can figure this out via a complete examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Satterwhite Chiropractic are well trained in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. They use a hands-on approach to diagnose and treat these conditions using various techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to reduce inflammation and improve range of motion in affected areas. Through regular visits with their Oxford chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans individualized for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can find relief without resorting to taking medications or undergoing surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a type of hands-on treatment that uses precise force, pressure, and direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is one very gentle type of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases pain. The applied forces can be measured precisely with proper equipment. Such precision benefits those with thoracic pain. Research has shown that this type of treatment can decrease stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to assist in the reduction of pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation decreased pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report stated that patients who were “responders” to spinal manipulation for non-specific thoracic spine pain relief were those whose expectations of improvement and comfort during spinal manipulation were positive. (2) So be positive! Satterwhite Chiropractic is ready to help.
